Once you’ve finished your gondola ride, you’ll take in two of the most important and beautiful sights of Venice’s former religious and political power. First is St. Mark’s Basilica, crowned by Venetian and Byzantine domes. You’ll learn all about the church from our expert history guide, as you marvel at the 24-carat gold-leafed ceiling mosaics. However, the highlight of the tour is a special visit to the Doge’s palace. You’ll visit the courtyard and noble areas of the Doge’s public and private areas, including the great ballrooms and Opera Museum, before heading on to the Bridge of Sighs.
